Stop the Hurt - a programme for change
The Stop the Hurt behaviour change programme is a therapeutic 17-week programme for males or females aged 16+ who use abusive behaviours towards their partners, ex partners, children, or other family members. The programme is designed to help teach positive, non-abusive ways to handle conflict situations, and provides those who attend with a tool kit of tips and strategies that can be used immediately.
It also highlights the benefits of building and maintaining healthy, respectful relationships. Men and women who take part in the programme will acknowledge the need to change their behaviour, and have a desire to change and demonstrate a commitment to doing so.
What is involved in the programme?
There is an assessment process involving a 1.5-2 hour information gathering session, after which a decision will be made as to your suitability for the programme. There is a weekly charge of £50 per person for those accepted.
Those accepted into Stop the Hurt are expected to attend every weekly session and talk openly about their behaviour, understand the impact on their partner, family and take responsibility for their behaviour. Participants are expected to engage fully in all activities.
Stop the Hurt's goals:
• Promote respectful and healthy relationships
• Reduce incidents of domestic violence and abuse
• Assist those who use violence or abuse against their partners to change and increase their levels of responsibility and accountability
• Support ex and current partners who are victims/survivors of domestic abuse to increase their safety
